The Jacman Group provides comprehensive electrical safety training/arc flash training courses in Maine. Our training covers all aspects of electrical equipment and NFPA 70E proper safety procedures to help companies meet and exceed OSHA requirements.
OSHA has established criteria for electrical safe work practices in Maine that specify a number of requirements for performing lockout and tagout (29 CFR 1910.147), working near energized equipment, limitations for non-qualified workers, working in confined spaces, working near overhead electrical lines, using ladders, use of measuring and other test equipment and for other activities.
When performing these duties, OSHA regulations require qualified workers to use “electrical protective equipment that is appropriate for the specific parts of the body to be protected and for the work to be performed.” This equipment is also required to be “maintained in a safe, reliable condition and shall be periodically inspected or tested.”
Arc Flash/NFPA 70E Training in Maine
Getting proper arc flash and NFPA 70E training in Maine is required by OSHA. Employers are responsible for providing workers with this mandatory electrical safety training or face substantial violations and OSHA fines.
Arc Flash Risk Assessment and Labeling Solutions in Maine
Arc flash risk assessment involves collecting data, electric system modeling, engineering analysis, and labeling. In Maine, as well as other states in the country, OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), will cite organizations that don’t provide proper protection for employees from arc flash and arc blast hazards. While OSHA 1910.331 – 1910.335 standard does not completely categorize every piece of equipment and procedure, it relies on the current NFPA 70E standard for electrical safety in the workplace, and companies should too.
